The Canadian New Music Network’s mentorship program, ConneXions, is back to help support and guide artists and arts workers in the realization of projects related to new creative music and sound.
Who is it for?
CNMN brings together all those who are interested in creative music and sound practices. This includes performers, composers and creators as well as presenters, producers, curators, educators and arts workers. If you have a new or existing project that could benefit from the guidance of an experienced mentor, this program is for you.
What is it?
Depending on the nature of your project, CNMN will fund one to four sessions with a mentor/coach with matching expertise. If applicable and useful, your mentorship and/or work will be highlighted on CNMN’s social media and in our communications. This initiative is about making connections between the members of our community and sharing knowledge first — the outcome of the connection is secondary.
How does it work?
CNMN will accept applications on a rolling basis from the beginning of August until October 18, 2021. Applications will be reviewed as they come in and mentorships granted on a rolling basis. The review group recommends a colleague with strong experience in the area and number of sessions, and will facilitate your initial meeting. The entire process will happen online.
